Description

A proposal to visit majestic landscapes, travel to the past and enjoy the tranquility that a vallisto town, like Cachi, can offer us. You will travel along scenic routes (Quebrada de Escoipe and Cuesta del Obispo) that together with the charming destination, form a captivating combo. You will travel to a magical town located in the Northwest of the Calchaquíes Valleys of Salta, surrounded by imposing mountains, snow-capped peaks, plateaus and with colonial architecture that will take you back in time. But not only the destination will amaze you, the route through different national and provincial routes is one of the most beautiful in Argentina. It will depart from the city of Salta, traveling through the central part of the Lerma Valley and then entering the Sub-Andean Sierras. Here you can explore and admire the landscapes of the Quebrada de Escoipe and the Cuesta del Obispo. You will experience contrasts of landscapes and climates: you will pass from the humid and exuberant jungles of the Yungas to the arid, cold and inhospitable Puna. During the ascent you will be able to enjoy spectacular views, imposing hills and the majestic condor that watches over you from the sky. At Piedra del Molino you will reach the highest point, 3,457 meters above sea level and then descend towards the Tin-Tin Straight in Los Cardones National Park to finally reach Cachi. Once there, you will be able to see its museum, church and you will have the opportunity to walk freely through its little streets. During the tour there are stops to walk and take pictures!
